KompoZer 0.8 localized builds

For the 0.8 branch, Cédric Corazza (l10n lead) has decided to publish localized builds instead of just proposing cross-platform langpacks. Not as easy as it seemed… but the new “Download” page is ready.

KompoZer 0.8b1

KompoZer logo

Finally entering the beta stage. Few bug fixes, but I've implemented the last features I wanted for the 0.8 branch:

  • FTP support
  • syntax highlighting in split view
  • ability to edit text files
  • better PHP support on GNU/Linux
  • new SVG icon
  • new UUID

You can grab KompoZer 0.8b1 here:

Enjoy… and please report bugs! :-)

Almost there…

I'm doing my best to release KompoZer 0.8b1 before the MozCamp ’09.

KompoZer 0.8b1

Some interesting features have been implemented for this release:

  • the FTP support is getting better: KompoZer 0.8b1 is able to upload any file, and creates subfolders properly
  • KompoZer 0.8b1 can finally open PHP files on Linux. Vingtetun, I owe you one for this!
  • side effect: KompoZer 0.8 will probably be able to edit text files (PHP, JavaScript, CSS, htaccess…)
  • the split view has been improved

GNU/Linux i686 users, you can try the latest nightly here and report bugs here. This version should be pretty close to the official 0.8b1 release but it still needs to be tested: it's not the official 0.8b1 release, it's just a snapshot.

The MacOS X and Windows versions are on their way. L10n contributors, get ready! :-)

EDIT (2009-09-30 15:15 GMT):

  • the download link on kompozer.net was a bad idea: I got a bandwidth alert, and kompozer.net might be down for a few hours. This file has been moved to SourceForge.net.
  • I'm not sure to have the time to release the official 0.8b1 before the MozCamp. Worst case, the binaries will be available next week.

KompoZer 0.8a4

Another step forward. For KompoZer 0.8a3 / 0.8a4 I’ve focused on these points:

  • bugfixes and improvements on HTML source edition
  • dual local/remote view in the site manager
  • localization

KompoZer 0.8a3

KompoZerYou might have noticed I’ve just released an alpha3 on SourceForge.net:

Ismael Olea has also contributed an RPM package, built on Fedora Core 10. ¡Muchas gracias!

<edit> Jean-Lucien Baudoin has just contributed a 64-bit RPM package, also built on Fedora Core 10. Merci ! </edit>

I won’t describe the new features because I’ve received too many regression reports already, one of them being a blocker. I’ll release an alpha4 ASAP to fix these regressions, feel free to report bugs in the SourceForge tracker in the meanwhile.

On the positive side, KompoZer 0.8 is now ready for localization. Cédric Corazza has done a great job to set up an l10n repository, and we’ve designed a script to help l10n teams creating langpacks for KompoZer 0.8 — either by upgrading an existing KompoZer 0.7 langpack, or by creating one from scratch using the Mozilla 1.8 locales. I’ll give more details when the alpha4 is published in another post, but you can contact me about that already.

If you want to contribute to this project (patches, translation, builds, whatever), you’re welcome to join us on the #kompozer chan.

KompoZer 0.8a2

KompoZerA little step forward. This new alpha should solve ~50% of all bugs that have been reported for KompoZer 0.8a1, among which:

  • broken cut/copy (!)
  • missing toolbar icons and other bugs in the CSS editor
  • “getIntPref” error in the font preferences window
  • non-working “View > HTML source” menu item

World of Goo sous GNU/Linux

World of Goo / LinuxWorld of Goo est disponible pour GNU/Linux depuis quelques jours. J’avais joué à la version démo Windows sous Wine, puis participé au beta-test de la version Linux. C’est un petit mélange de Lemmings et de puzzle, qui a eu de nombreuses éloges dans la presse spécialisée.

À découvrir d’urgence pour ceux qui ne le connaissent pas : la démo est gratuite, le jeu ne coûte que 20$ et il est garanti 100% sans DRM !

Je suis tout sauf un gamer, loin de moi l’idée de faire la pub pour ce jeu — son éditeur, 2D Boy, n’a pas besoin de mon aide tant son jeu a fait parler de lui. Ce qui m’intéresse plus particulièrement, ce sont ces deux chiffres :

Et 2DBoy de conclure :

There is a market for Linux games after all :)

Quel rapport avec le logiciel libre ? Je fais peut-être un raccourci éhonté, mais j’y vois là la preuve que les utilisateurs Linux sont à la fois plus respectueux des licences et plus intéressés par des jeux novateurs. Donc oui, je crois effectivement que les éditeurs auraient intérêt à faire des versions Linux natives de leurs jeux : il y a bien plus à gagner que le seul pourcentage d’utilisateurs Linux.

Quant aux pirates, à qui j’adresse tout mon mépris : je crois que World of Goo prouve malheureusement que les arguments archi-classiques du type « c’est parce que c’est trop cher » ou « c’est à cause des DRMs » ne tiennent pas. On peut raisonnablement craindre qu’une offre légale, sans DRM, diversifiée et abordable de contenu culturel se heurterait au même problème : du pain béni pour les sous-doués de la politique qui nous peaufinent un bon vieux filtrage du net.

Je suis probablement un peu vieux jeu, mais je crois que les associations libristes gagneraient en crédibilité vis-à-vis des politiques si elles faisaient *aussi* passer le message que le piratage, c’est du vol.

KompoZer 0.8a1

Yes, a new version of KompoZer is coming. KompoZer has been ported to a new Mozilla core, and the new UI displays more relevant information about the current HTML element: DOM tree, style properties, HTML code.

KompoZer 0.8

In other words: KompoZer 0.8 should be rock-solid and aims to be a better learning tool.
